The Integrated Graduate Program in the Life Sciences, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois, USA
Physiology (Bethesda) 22:303-9. 2007..Inputs from various cell-signaling events can therefore impact beta-catenin function, which may be necessary for the finely tuned adhesive and signaling responses required for tissue morphogenesis...

- Distinct molecular forms of beta-catenin are targeted to adhesive or transcriptional complexesCara J Gottardi
Department of Cell Biology, University of Virginia School of Medicine, Charlottesville, VA 22908, USA
J Cell Biol 167:339-49. 2004..This model explains how cells can control whether beta-catenin is used independently in cell adhesion and nuclear signaling, or competitively so that the two processes are coordinated and interrelated...
- Polycystin-1 C-terminal tail associates with beta-catenin and inhibits canonical Wnt signalingMark Lal
Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT 06510, USA
Hum Mol Genet 17:3105-17. 2008..Our results suggest a novel mechanism through which PC1 cleavage may impact upon Wnt-dependent signaling and thereby modulate both developmental processes and cystogenesis...
- VE-cadherin and beta-catenin binding dynamics during histamine-induced endothelial hyperpermeabilityMingzhang Guo
Department of Surgery, University of California Davis School of Medicine, Sacramento, CA 95817, USA
Am J Physiol Cell Physiol 294:C977-84. 2008..Taken together, these data suggest that inflammatory agents like histamine cause a transient and reversible disruption of binding between beta-catenin and VE-cadherin, during which endothelial permeability is elevated...
